Society Folk at Work
To Make Benefit
Big Success
OAKLAND, Nov. 6.—Society folk of
Pruitvale are preparing one of the
banner social events of the season
Saturday evening , in the form of a
dance to be given by members of the
Leona society, an organization of
Fruitvale women. The affair will be in
Eagle hall, East Fourteenth street and
Liese avenue, and it is expected that
all available floor space will be oc
cupied, as many have signified their
intention of participating.
The function will be in the form of
a benefit, as the proceeds will be given
to charity. In an endeavor to make
the dance unique, those in charge have
arranged for a snowball, or confetti
dance, which will be a feature of the
evening, lending a carnival atmosphere.
Other features will be extensive dec
orations of the hall and the music,
furnished by a full orchestra.
The committee has been untiring in
its efforts to make the affair one of
the successes of the season. The ar
rangements are in the hands of a com
mittee, at the head of which is Miss
Genevieve Schnarr of Fruitvale, who
was recently chosen queen of the Na
tive Sons carnival in Fruitvale. Among
her assistants are Miss Elizabeth
Carew, Mrs. William P. Seiberlich, Miss
Eileen Burke and Miss Rose Starsinich.

ON A ROADHOUSE
Oakland City Council Orders
Fuller's Garden Resort
Closed
OAKLAND, Nov. 6.—The city council
today took drastic action on the appli
cation of A> Schwartz, proprietor of
Fuller's gardens, a roadhouse at 6831
East Fourteenth street, for permission
to transfer the liquor license to V. Bie
lawski. Not only was the request de
nied, but Schwartz was given 30 days in
which to dispose of his interests, and
the new owner will not be permitted to
sell liquor there.
The council had tentatively agreed to
grant the transfer, when Bessie J.
Wood and other women interested in
social work objected on the ground
that the roadhouse was not properly
conducted. Chief of Police Petersen
also gave reasons why the place should
be closed.
The objectors said Bielawski would
conduct the place along the same lines
as Schwartz. Commissioner W. J. Bac
cus said the roadhouse had an evil repu
tation and was a disgrace to the city.
Upon his motion the council voted to
refuse the granting of the transfer and
then adopted a resolution forcing
Schwartz to sell out and demanding
that the liquor license, which still has
some time to run, be transferred to
some other location, not to be retained
by Schwartz or given to Bielawski.

Otherwise they would never get to their

The Apollo Player Piano
Is the Only Player
Touching Down On the Keys
Look in our window this week and se*e a model of the
APOLLO PLAYER PIANO touching down on the
keys—the way a human being plays the Piano.
1$ Did you ever see a pianist play the Piano by any other
method than touching down on the keys? Did you ever see
a pianist play up on the keys? No—therefore if the pianists
are right, then the APOLLO is right, and down on the keys
is the only correct way.
«J The APOLLO is the only Player Piano built on the
principle of the down touch—the only Player Piano which
has the METRONOME MOTOR and which has the
correct SOLO DEVICE.
€J Do not these things make the APOLLO worth investi
gating?

CRUDE FORCEPS
SAVE GIRL'S LIFE
Berkeley Doctors, Baffled by
Windpipe Obstruction Forge
Instrument
BERKELEY, Nov. 6.—After all sur
gical appliances had proved ineffectual
in clearing an obstruction from a child's
throat, three Berkeley doctors invented
an instrument, which they had made
in San Francisco, and last night they
performed a successful operation. The
child is Jessie Bush, 8 years, daughter
of Dr. W. P. Bush, a dentist of 1736
Parker street.
LaJft Saturday the child, while eating
pine nuts, got one of them in her wind
pipe. Efforts to ejecfthe nut failed,
and for three days the girl suffered in
tense agony, and her life even was
being despaired of.
She was taken to the Roosevelt hos
pital and Dr. J. E. Kelsey, Dr. W. EL
Graham and Dr. W. H. Boone were
called. An X-ray photograph showed
the position of the nut. Then they
got a set of instruments for bronchial
treatment from a San Francisco hos
pital and endeavored to clear the girl's
throat. The? failed.
Unable to use successfully any known
instrument, they decided that the nut
could be removed only with forceps,
but no forceps of the kind needed was
known. So the doctors devised the
right kind of instrument. With this
they removed the nut and saved .the
girl's life.
